Libby was our contact person- She was very knowledgeable, kind and responsive. The venue is beautiful, we had both the ceremony and reception at the same location. Every staff member was on point and knew exactly what to do. Many of my guests made it a point to tell me how much they enjoyed the venue and staff.

Love the Maxwell room at the Downtowner! Great staff and food and you're right on the New River! Awesome place for any event, large or small!

There is so much to say about The Historic Maxwell Room with its classic Fort Lauderdale feel on the New River. I love the place and the food is fantastic. They make some of the best fish in south Florida, paired with full bar and friendly staff, you can't beat this place. The history behind this place and its longevity tells you it something you do not want to miss. Visit this place and plan your event here if you are looking for a true Fort Lauderdale event.
